News on environmental zones and air pollution
The city now informs the citizens that the air quality or the particulate matter values are too bad. Therefore, it is recommended to use public transports instead of one’s car. The last few months have also shown that particulate matter levels have fallen. During this period, the most polluted place in Germany was no longer "Neckartor", but Silbersteinstraße in Berlin-Neukölln. This is nevertheless mainly due to weather conditions. The future will show whether there is a real downward trend.
